When I first went there I was hesitant due to being a woman, but they took good care of me. I they fix the problem without having to fix other things that did not need to be fix, I had a major things done to our SUV and they fix it. When I was with out my SUV they drove to my house. While waiting at home for them to finish it came time for me to pick up my oldest child from school, they came and got me from my house and took me by the school to get my oldest child no extra charge. When I go there my truck was just getting finish. It felt like a new truck when I got it from them. I also come go to them when i need an oil changes. The place is very clean and maintain, they know what they are talking about, and they don't do extra thing to make money, the SUV still drive well today, If i leved closer to them, I would continue to get my SUV done there. I would recommend this place to anyone.

i simply can't say enough good things. it's hard to find a good mechanic that you can honestly trust not to mention how scary it is pricing the cars issue around town with the many shops available. i will say this is my new mechanic, i will be a life long customer, and would recommend this shop hands down not just for the area but any place i've dealt with in my entire life. my cars issues were brake pads and rotors. was told by other shops who inspected the vehicle i also needed calipers. this place didn't try and gouge me. not only did they beat everyone elses price from oly to centralia for the job, i was advised to not needing calipers. what mechanic do you know that would tell you not to spend money you didn't need, i was none the wiser. honest, fast (same day service with a busy shop), and genuinely good people. this is what humans should be like.

Hard to beat this shop, friendly people and good work at fair prices. Can't ask for more. I would recommend this company 100%. They fixed my transmission for a few hundred dollars and I was glad to pay it. They took me home, picked me up and the cookies were a wonderful touch. Its rare to find excellence like this anymore in any business, I will use them again.

Wow!!! Name says it all. My car got towed in for a defective alternator. Marc diagnosed the problem and found that all the problem was, was a bad fuse. Not only did he drop everything he was doing but he didn't even charge me for figuring out the problem or the fuse. Got me and my kids back on the road with in an hour of being towed in. Thank you!!!!

Replaced oxygen sensor on 1997 Acura 3.5RL within hours at HALF the quoted price of the Dealer in Fife. OBC diagnostic was FREE (vs. dealer $120) so I scheduled replacement the next day. Not the prettiest place, but does excellent work and explains / shows old parts to you.

Jack is honest and a great mechanic. If you don't want to be taken and pay for stuff you don't need, then this is where you go.

Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
